    Hello All - I am planning on moving back to the Midwest this Spring and was looking into going solo in a mowing service. Since I will be renting when I get back I will need to store my mowing equipment that I do not have yet. Went online last night to search for U-Haul Storage and learned what I feared was true. They do have a policy of no flammables to be stored in their facilities. Needless to say that will have put the kabash to my plans....:cry:

    A cardboard box is flamable, I beleive that policy stands for filled gas cans and the like.... not winterized lawn equipment.

    Yes, :clapping:, the previous poster gave me a glimmer of hope. Now if someone could suggest other storage facilities that could be use other than U-Haul please let me know. Do I just look in the local paper when I get back there? Unless I hear otherwise I assume I would. When previous poster stated tons of options I am kind at a lost as to what he means?

    Look in the paper for commercial rentals and see if there is one saying " locked yard space"
